Countdown to TNA No Surrender
By JON WALDMAN -- SLAM! Wrestling




I can't hold back anymore - it's becoming more depressing around TNA.

Look up and down the list of what's happening in the company and you can't help but feel saddened. The company, rather than building up new stars and pushing their true top talents, are setting up for Hulk Hogan vs. Sting next month, roughly a dozen years past when a match between the two meant anything.

Thanks to Twitter, we've heard about cheques bouncing, Kurt Angle and Jeff Hardy, two of the legitimate top draws for the company are in legal woes and, to top it all off, the Bound For Glory Series, which looked so promising, has been (rightly) skewered due to its uneven match allotment and bizarre finish which takes place tonight at No Surrender.

I say it's depressing because as someone who tunes in most every Thursday it's really becoming a drag, knowing all the troubles the company is going through. Every time they seem to right the ship, something happens either internally or externally to put us back to square one.

I really can't offer up anything constructive at this point, but I'll try to for a Mat Matters for BFG time. In the meantime, let's look at what's going down tonight.


TNA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

Sting vs. Kurt Angle vs. Ken Anderson

Sting and Angle did a lot better last time than they had any right to. I don't think we'll get a similar level of output tonight. I'm honestly done with Mr. Anderson; he's changed from heel to babyface a few too many times for me to care at this point.
TNA TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

Devon/The Pope vs. Mexican Americans

I'll say it again. LAX 2.0 bores the heck out of me. I'm guessing this is where Pope finally turns on Devon.
X-DIVISION TITLE MATCH

Austin Aries vs. Brian Kendrick

Aries has to win here. Next to LAX 2.0, Kendrick is the most annoying part of TNA to me. The guru gimmick has to go.
  TNA KNOCKOUTS TITLE MATCH

Mickie James vs. Winter
 

We're having the EXACT SAME MATCH as last month, with Mickie again holding the belt?!? Come on, seriously. Winter wins and we get the match with Velvet next month at BFG.
 

#1 X-DIVISION CONTENDER'S MATCH

Jesse Sorenson vs. Kid Kash

 

Kash... man, dude looks roughed up. I'm hopeful that Sorenson gets pushed properly but it's too soon to put him up against Austin Aries.
  BOUND FOR GLORY MATCH

Bobby Roode vs. Gunner
 

Roode takes it to go to BFG.
  BOUND FOR GLORY MATCH

Bubba Ray vs. James Storm
 

The former Dudley has to go over here. I've actually really enjoyed Ray as a singles competitor, a lot more than I thought I would. Well done!
  GRUDGE MATCH

Matt Morgan vs. Samoa Joe
 

Does Joe finally get his redemption here? I hope so; but I doubt it.
